Sexual Perversions, 1670-1890 By Julie Peakman
2009 | 312 Pages | ISBN: 0230555101 | PDF | 8 MB

In a series of original essays, Sexual Perversions attempts to open a debate – to begin an exploration into the history of the many sexual activities considered outside the realm of normal behaviour. For the first time in an examination of this period, such diverse subject matter as necrophilia, paedophilia, cross-dressing, religious perversion, foot fetishism and rape, will be brought together. The book covers religion, culture and literature in history and introduces new scholars working in the arena of the history of sexuality. It involves an analytical appraisal of documentation including plays, poems, erotica, trial records, pamphlets, sermons, and travelogues, in a multi-disciplinary approach.
